      • Software that is effective, free, standards-based, easy to use, sustainable, measurable, and thoroughly interoperable
    • Specifications
      • Must be considered with WHO, UNICEF, MoH, UCLA, OCHA, UNOSAT, ISDR, Relief Web and many more…
    • Development (at least at InSTEDD)
      • We’ve built four free and open-source tools as prototypes for improved collaboration in crisis. They fill gaps we perceived.
    • Implementation
      • beta evaluation in progress with all four in Southeast Asia
